Parole simili a "Whatnot" e le sue differenze

Q: Qual è la differenza tra whatnots e "what have you" ?
A: A whatnot is a small unspecified thing

What have you also means “things” but it’s things generally.

Whatnots are small items such as collectibles or small things decorating a house.
Q: Qual è la differenza tra or whatnot e or something ?
A: "Whatnot" comes from "What not." For example, "He was burning wood and metal and bricks and plastic and whatnot." In this sentence, whatnot has the idea "was there anything that he was not burning?" or "he was burning so many things, that there was nothing that he was not burning."
So, "whatnot" is used like "something," but only in situations when "something" could be anything (within reason). A common sentence that it might be used in is "They had everything at that store. They had this and that and whatnot." It just means that the store had everything you might want.

Saying "or whatnot" is similar to "or something." The subtle difference is that "or whatnot" implies that the speaker is not sure if they are describing something correctly. While "or something" is the speaker is sure that their description is correct, but they are not sure what to call it. For example, "He owns a Ferrari or whatnot." This means that the speaker is describing a car, but they don't know what kind it was. It might be similar to a Ferrari, but they don't know. It might not be similar to a Ferrari at all. "He owns a ferrari or something." This means that the speaker has a reason to think that the car is specifically a Ferrari, but it is possible that the car is something similar to a Ferrari.

There is not a rule on when to use these phrases, but that is the difference that I notice between them.
Q: Qual è la differenza tra whatnot e what-not ?

what not...= what not to wear, what not to do..
………what not to eat.....
